Infos & Booking


After having climbed the first "discovery" part of this via ferrata of Roche Veyrand in Chartreuse massif, I propose you to go on with the second part, much more difficult, impressive and vertiginous.

Above the village of Saint-Pierre-d'Entremont, you start by going around a small boulder to reach the footbridge of the "Pas de la Frousse", 40 meters long and slightly uphill. Then a pillar allows you to reach a ledge where there are several caves (whose shade is very appreciable in the summer). You then go around another pillar to continue to cross the ledge, in a very very vertiginous atmosphere, until the "pont des Balmes". Shortly after, it is time to go up again, in a vertical section, and even overhanging in its middle. A ledge follows, a chimney of a few meters and a crossing under a roof before approaching the last overhang, with more than 200 meters of void under your feet. A final easy slab leads to the end of the cabled route. A last effort of about fifteen minutes to reach the top of Roche Veyrand will reward you with an incredible panorama on the Chartreuse summits before the walk back on a path to the parking lot.
